While Trump was delivering one of the most memorable SOTU speeches we’ve seen yet, she was busy putting the ‘weak’ in ‘weak leadership’.
She was ‘pre-scoring’ the speech so she could rip it later.
That’s right. It appears that she made small tears in the pages to ensure they ripped properly when the cameras were on her.
It wasn’t a spontaneous decision on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-CA)’s part to protest a speech that she disagreed with — it was a calculated political move intended to steal the headlines after what may have been the best speech that President Trump has ever made.
It worked like a charm.
Video reveals that Speaker Pelosi took the sheets and made small tears in them essentially prepping them to rip in the center of the pages. She chose to do it at the moment that President Trump acknowledged Rush Limbaugh.
As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh — who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech — Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table.
Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table.

Gee, good thing that isn’t the behavior of someone who’s petty and small, or anything.
Here’s the video that looks like it caught her in the act.

By way of contrast, here’s what the son of Ronaldus Magnus had to say about the speech that got Pelosi so very worked up:
My father would’ve stood and applauded Donald Trump‘s State of the Union address. Bravo @realDonaldTrump
